E!'s new scripted series The Arrangement is definitely, totally, not at all about the relationship between actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, but it's hard to ignore the similarities between the former high-profile couple and the story of aspiring actress Megan Morrison (Christine Evangelista) and established movie star Kyle West (Josh Henderson).
When Megan meets Kyle during an audition for a major summer blockbuster, the two go on an incredible first date only for Megan to subsequently be presented with a million-dollar contract that could change her life and ensure her fortune and fame. As if an arranged relationship in the spotlight isn't problematic enough, the series adds another complicated layer when it's revealed Kyle's mentor Terence Anderson (Michael Vartan), the leader of the Institute of The Higher Mind -- a secretive self-help organization that is definitely, totally, not at all Scientology -- is behind the existence of the contract. As the story unfolds, Megan must decide how far she is willing to go to further her career.
The 10-episode drama hails from Emmy Award-winning writer and executive producer Jonathan Abrahams, who sees the series as "a truly unique story that takes place in Hollywood." But again, it's not supposed to be about Scientology.
